NGI Scholarship Info

In 2006, PCI embarked on a youth scholarship program devised by the New Generation Initiative committee. In each year since, our Program Providers have offered PCI fee waivers, matching them with their own to create full or half scholarships. To date, more than 250 NGI Scholarships have been awarded.
NGI scholarships are administered by the Program Providers, assisted by Sponsors who help select candidates and facilitate the process. If you are interested in applying for an NGI scholarship or sponsoring a candidate for a particular camp session, please contact the Program Provider organizing that session. For general questions about the program, email
